Los Angeles- a car city? Think again…

Los Angeles is going to build…, take a deep breath…., ready? Los Angeles is going to build 1,680 miles of interconnected bikeways! That’s 2,703  km to be more precise.

The Los Angeles City Council approved a new bike master plan, which is going to make the city much more bike-friendly. As of today there are 378 miles (608 km) of bikeways in the city.

Maybe many planners need to re-think when it comes to their notions about Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is already massively extending its light rail and its underground. As of today it has a total system length of 127 km  but those km will grow.
